                                      EXECUTIVE ORDER D—271—8
                               Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                            of the Vehicle Code

                                         KENNE BELL, INC.
                                  6 PSL TS SERIES SUPERCHARGER

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of the Health
and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the TS Series Supercharger, manufactured
and marketed by Kenne Bell, Inc., 10743 Bell Court, Rancho Cucamonga, California, 91730 has been
found not to reduce the effectiveness ofthe applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is
exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the following Ford applications:

                          Model                       Engine Displacement

                    1996—98 Mustang                            4.6L
                    1996—98 Trucks                             4.6/5 AL

The TS Series Supercharger includes the following main components: Twin screw type supercharger
with a 3.125" diameter pulley (4.6L) or 2.75" diameter pulley (5.4L), intake manifold, fuel management
booster, and a new computer chip.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the supercharger will not
recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions ofthe supercharger, as exempt by the Air Resources
Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate
this Executive Order.

Marketing of the supercharger using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or
marketing ofthe supercharger for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board. Exemption of the
supercharger shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the
kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the supercharger may
have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure emissions data.
However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Kenne Bell supercharger
may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
parameters of the previously prescribed test procedures. Accordingly, the ARB reserves the right to
conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as such tests are developed, that will more adequately

KENNE BELL, INC.                     '                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—271—8
TS SERIES SUPERCHARGER                                                (Page 2 of 2)

measure emissions from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate that the supercharger adversely
affects emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as those conditions which are beyond the
parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively
rescinded as of the date the test results are validated. Further, if such test results or other evidence
provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the supercharger will affect the durability of the emission
control systems, Kenne Bell shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of the
vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
demonstrates adequate durability.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order and
the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part continues to meet the
standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.


No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made with respect to the
action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The order may be
revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in which period the holder of
the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it
shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a
determination after hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this dfi 7L fiay of November 1997.

                                                         R. B.   Summerfield, Chief
                                                         Mobile Source Operations Division
